Product Description

Parallel circuit - constant wattage trace heating tape for frost protection and temperature maintenance of commercial and industrial pipework and vessels.

Type VC heating tape is our most commonly used constant wattage heating tape and is designed to be cut from reel lengths and site terminated to suit pipework.

This trace heating cable consists of 1m heating zones, each connected across a pair of continuous bus-wire conductors along the cable length. Each complete 1m heating zone will give its full power output when the correct circuit voltage is connected to the 1.5mm conductors.

The type VC heating tape range comes in varying power outputs and voltage types (other wattage loadings and voltages can be produced to order, contact us for advice).

Suitable for internal and external freeze protection and temperature maintenance, hot water lines, oil and chemical lines, sprinkler system mains and supply piping (as listed in Clause 1 BS EN 62395).

You will require a type VC/T termination kit to terminate / seal the front and back ends of the heating tape. Thermostatic control is recommended with all trace heating installations and type VC heating cable is compatible with our full range of temperature controllers.

Prior to and following installation the heating cable can be fully tested for continuity insulation resistance.
